It’s advent calendar time. 24 doors mixing the fight against corruption with hope to save the geese of Sandwell. Door 6 of the story opens today.
Ridiculous excuses. At the same time as receiving confirmation that I had been lied to by Sandwell council officers, the cabinet member for Highways and Environment sent me a letter attempting to justify the cull of 220 birds– to make way for a non-native set of other birds. At this point the rationale of protecting public health and public safety appears to be an afterthought in trying to dig their way out of a hole. Through scrutiny, it would only continue to get deeper and deeper.
